Equipped with high-tech Matrix coloring tools and Keratin Express conditioning supplies, they perform a full slate of haircare services alongside aestheticians who skillfully apply top-quality makeup and cleanse skin with Bioelements products.

People use their hands in different ways, which makes it hard to find a single style of manicure that fits mitts universally. That’s why the nail technicians of Thumbs Up To You tailor their service menu to meet a wide range of needs, working around sensitive skin with odor-free fiberglass nails or offering chip-resistant Shellac polish for fingers facing long days of typing, chopping, or digging moats by hand. The shop also caters to busy schedules, offering no-frills fix ups such as quick polish changes or dry manicures to keep tips looking chic between services.
The current Chaos Studio Salon was a labor of love. In 2012, Jennifer realized she'd outgrown her current space, but it wasn't until it began leaking from the ceiling that she decided to make the leap—and to do that, she called her Dad. Together, the pair scouted a new location, then brought the Chaos Studio Salon team together to lovingly transform the space. Now, master and senior stylists transform locks with Paul Mitchell tools and color beneath twinkling chandeliers, and walls and doors lined with repurposed barn boards offset the bright colors and dynamic artwork that surround the Bubble, Hydration, and Color Bars. Lash artists highlight eyes with 3D extensions, and at the Tool Bar , guests can pick up a few products for use at home or while hang gliding to a special event.
Amid rose- and evergreen-hued décor, aesthetician Tracy Winn supervises five specialty facials, each of which addresses a different skincare concern, using all-natural products. One treatment focuses on moisturizing dry skin, and others reduce the appearance of age spots or acne. The carefully calibrated glycolic-acid or pumpkin-extract solutions of the chemical peels lift away dead skin to reveal younger cells playing Red Rover underneath. Victorian-style lamps and an oversize clock face give the lobby a sense of vintage charm, and shelves support glass curiosities in private treatment rooms.
The chefs at Russo's Gourmet Pizza bake hearty signature pizzas with a full spectrum of fresh, colorful toppings. Each of the 15 signature delicacies features its own blend of sauces and ingredients, and may sit atop a choice of four varieties of pizza crust including sesame seed, butter parmesan, garlic, and Cajun. To prevent regulars from sprouting pepperoni on their chests, Russo's Gourmet Pizza also crafts traditional Italian entrees such as vegetable lasagna and chicken parmesan. Intricate salads feature ingredients such as dried cherries and gorgonzola cheese, and gluten-free pizza and vegetarian options accommodate patrons with special diets. The pie menagerie offers delivery service seven days each week, preventing pizzas from getting lost while rolling to homes on their own.
A profusion of flowers frames the entrance to Salon Maison Rouge, hinting that the treatment rooms inside offer refuge from the hectic rituals of urban life. Their hints prove accurate—once inside, guests immediately take note of the wicker chairs, potted plants, and paintings arranged to promote relaxation. The salon’s stylists create music as they snip their shears, shaping new haircuts to complement the aestheticians’ makeovers. Before indulging in a moisturizing four-layer facial, help yourself to a complimentary snack or beverage and get dressed in the spa’s signature uniform: a soft robe and terrycloth top hat.
For Salon Dion's stylists, knowledge is power. From following trends around the globe to seeking out new training and techniques, their everlasting quest to expand their skills has resulted in work at New York Fashion Week and the Miss Michigan pageant, as well as various television appearances and photo shoots. But they primarily use their talents on clients seated at the salon’s BlowDry Bar. Here, they check scalp conditions, then address any problems with treatments tailored to each customer. The team's expertise also extends to chic haircuts, current color trends, customized facials, bridal services, and expert waxing designed to provide brows with the exact amount of arch needed to play a supervillain.
